The University of Missouri has tabbed its latest interim athletic director.
On Wednesday, Chancellor Hank Foley appointed Sarah Reesman as the university’s interim athletic director effective Friday. Reesman will remain in the role until a permanent replacement for Mack Rhoades is found.
“As we continue to search for an Athletic Director, I am pleased to announce that Sarah Reesman has agreed to serve in the position on an interim basis beginning Friday, Aug. 5. Sarah has been traveling abroad for the past two weeks and will return to the office on Thursday,” Foley said in a statement.
“Sarah has been with Mizzou athletics for 23 years and currently oversees many of the operational functions of the department, including human resources, academic support, student-athlete development, diversity and inclusion activities, student conduct and employee contracts. She also is the liaison with the women’s basketball team and is the administrator for volleyball, women’s and men’s swimming and diving, and wrestling.
“Sarah will have my full support as she steps into this new role later this week.”
Rhoades left Missouri back in July for the same position at Baylor.
